Are you working for a company or for a person?

This question is more important today than ever before. The current landscape calls for businesses and products that are lead by people. Social media is structured to serve the person at the forefront of the company, the voice of the product, and the brains behind the business.

That’s why on today’s episode of The MentorBox Podcast, we are joined Dorie Clark to discuss reinventing ourselves. Dorie is a speaker, marketing consultant, and author of three books (most recently, Entrepreneurial You.) She teaches, writes, and speaks on branding, marketing strategy, executive leadership, income diversification, networking, and much more. Her clients include Google, Sony, and Boeing; and her writing has been featured in Inc., The New York Times, and many more.

Listen to today’s episode to hear Dorie’s story, and how we can use it as a framework for our own path to success.
